Shows such wonderful clarity and class on the nose, with crushed raspberries, blackberries and just a hint of flowers. Full-bodied, with layers of ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic. Just coming around. (JS, Web-2007)
A massive wine, with a cigar box, chocolatey, thick, black currant and cherry-scented nose, this full-bodied wine is crammed with layers of fruit, extract, glycerin, and alcohol. Spicy yet rich, with high tannin, the 1995 Canon-La-Gaffeliere will need a minimum of 5-6 years of cellaring. The finish is long and rich, and the tannin sweet rather than astringent. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. (RP)
Dark ruby, not quite as saturated as the '96. Expressive, sauvage aromas of black raspberry, cassis, smoke, leather and coffee; even riper than the '96. Supple and sweet in the middle palate, with terrific flavor intensity and lovely framing acidity. But a bit brutal on the back end, with substantial, somewhat tough tannins that call for six or seven years of bottle aging. The combination of lively acids and serious tannins give this wine a slightly spiky quality today. 90+ points. (ST)
